The President of the United States having by 
proclamation designated Thursday, Nov. 27, 19 13, as 
a day of national Thanksgiving: 

Now, therefore, I, Edward F. Dunne, Governor 
of the State of Illinois, do hereby urge upon the 
citizens of this state the observance of that day in such 
ceremonies as will express our appreciation of the 
blessings with which the bounty of providence has sur- 
rounded us; for the abundance of our harvests and our 
continued enjoyment of industrial prosperity and for 
the peace and tranquillity of our country and the social 
and educational advantages we possess as citizens of an 
enlightened community. 

For the enjoyment of these manifold blessings it 
is fitting that we should join in the public expression 
of our thankfulness to him to whose beneficence we 
owe their enjoyment and upon whose favor we are 
dependent for their continuance. 

1 , therefore, urge that our citizens cease from their 
ordinary vocations and that they devote the day to 
participation in ceremonies appropriate to teach the 
lesson of thankfulness and gratitude to the giver of 
the abundance and prosperity with which our country 
has been blessed in the last yiar.

Following a time honored custom, the President of the 
United States and the Governor of Illinois have issued 
proclamations appointing Thursday, the 27th day of 
November, a day of State and National Thanksgiving, and 
calling on all citizens to recognize the goodness of 
Almighty God in the blessings which have come to us as a 
people. Such a call from our chief executives meets with 
a cheerful response in every patriotic heart. 

As a college community we have special reason for 
gratitude for the manifold blessings of Divine Providence. 
God has been very good to us. For more than twenty 
years the College has had no accident, no general epi- 
demic, very few cases of serious illness, and no deaths of 
students or teachers during the college year. During the 
last ten years He has blessed us with college advancement 
rarely equalled. The notable additions of property, both 
on the east and the west, the addition of the power house, 
The Maids' Cottage, Music Hall, and Harker Hall, and of 

Page Three 

®fje College Greeting* 

more than a dozen residence properties across the street 
on every side, are evidences that His good hand is upon 
us for good. The successful campaign for $180,000 for 
equipment and endowment has crowned the past year 
with His goodness. 

For all these mercies, for the largest attendance in 
many years, for a devoted faculty, for an ever increasing 
body of loyal and enthusiastic students, for hosts of friends 
who more and more believe in the Woman's College, for 
a growing loyalty to sound learning and personal right- 
eousness, and increasing devotion to our College motto, 
Knowledge, Faith, Service, we thank God, and acknowl- 
edge Him the Giver of all our good. 

I therefore set apart Thursday, the 27th day of No- 
vember, 1913, as a special day of thanksgiving, and re- 
quest that we all at the Illinois Woman's College lay aside 
our ordinary cares and duties and observe the day in such 
manner as will show our gratitude and thankfulness to 
Almighty God. 


November 10, 1913. President 


There was a time when the memory of the Pilgrim who 
came to this country was the center of the Thanksgiving 
Day which he had established. 'Thankful for five ker- 
nels of corn," those words thrilled us with admiration and 
wonder. Thankful when they had abundance, thankful 
when they had five grains. In some way the Pilgrim 
Fathers have slipped from our Thanksgiving Days, but 
the spirit in which the day was originated goes on. Per- 
haps we are not as thankful when we have little as when 
we have much. Yet the spirit of the day makes us re- 
member that we have much for which to be grateful; 
makes us wish to pass on to ethers some of the good that 
we have received.

Mrs. Jacob Turkey wheeled about and gave Petie a 
rap that sent him measuring his own circumference sev- 
eral times in succession. 

"I don't know what will ever become of that child. 
He's always doing something to worry me. He will 
surely some day sink his poor mother in sorrow to the 

Now, the young culprit on whom these reflections 
were cast had just been in the act of trying to snatch a 
plump little worm — a rare morsel at this time of the year 
from Ebenezer, the angel child, in whose behalf the 
mother had been searching all morning to find just such 
a choice bite as this. 

"He's the greediest child I ever saw" — here she 
hurled a menacing glance in his direction. Then, looking 
proudly at Ebenezer, as if comparing his fat round body 
to Peter's over-thin frame, she fondly drew him beneath 
her sheltering wing. 

Poor little Petie! He stood wistfully noting these 
caresses. Not once had his mother drawn him to her in 
this manner. He did not stand long in this attitude, how- 
ever, as hunger sent him forth again in quest of food. It 
was nearing bed time and still no sign of anything to 
soothe those pangs — so he dragged his wearly little body 
back to the family roost. 

One day his mother found him feeding with the 
Widow Goose's children near a small creek back of the 
spring-house. In a fit of anger she flew at him. He 
was forever disgracing the family! Didn't he understand 
it was strictly forbidden for her children to recognize the 
widow's family ? Petie did understand — but he had been, 
oh, so hungry! 

Just then Ebenezer came up with a peevish little 
"peep-peep," and soon Petie and his misdemeanors were 
quite forgotten in her efforts to comfort Ebenezer. 

Page Five 

Gflfje CoEege <©reetmg* 

Day after day, week after week, month after month, 
Ebenezer grew larger and fatter till he was, as his mother 
expressed it, the finest young turkey in Lanesdown. 

Soon a wonderful thing happened! What could it 
all mean ? Peter was so happy, he could scarcely contain 
himself. Every day, and three times a day at that, Far- 
mer Jones came out into the chicken yard and gave them 
corn in abundance. Ebenezer had all he could eat — his 
mother saw to that — still there was enough left for Petie. 

Although Peter now picked up fast, Mrs. Jacob still 
observed with a great deal of satisfaction that Ebenezer 
was by far the finer, fatter, fairer of the two. 

One morning, early, as Petie walked into the chicken 
yard, he heard the farmer praising his brother. Every- 
body praised Ebenezer, but hist — What is that he is say- 
ing? "It will take your biggest blue print platter to hold 
him, Maria. What a splendid Thanksgiving turkey he 
will make!". 

Petie's heart almost stopped beating. Then Eben- 
ezer's was to grace the festal board on the following 
Thursday. "It shall not be," thought he. "Why 
couldn't it have been me? " 

It must be he! He had always been a thorn in the 
flesh to his mother. There was only one thing to be done 
and that quickly — he must find Ebenezer, tell him to stop 
eating, while he himself would eat, both by day and by 
night. He must be on that blue platter Thanksgiving 
morning, not Ebenezer. 

Out by the currant bushes he found him, settled beside 
his mother, toasting his back in what sunlight was to be 
found. After what seemed an eternity to Petie, he had a 
chance to see his brother alone. Of course it is useless 
to say that for once Ebenezer thoroughly approved of his 
brother's plan. His mother must be kept ignorant of it 
as she might thus be shielded from unnecessary worry — 
not that she would worry about Petie — but she might be 
afraid that his plan would fail.

3W)e College Greeting* 

Petie stuffed and stuffed till the very sight of a grain 
of corn sickened him. Ebenezer, although his mother 
implored him to eat, stoutly refused, saying that Petie 
needed it much worse than he. Let him have it all. 

"Now did you ever see such a dear, unselfish child as 
my Ebenezer? " she said to Jane Cadacket one day when 
Peter was feasting while Ebenezer stood by watching. 
"He's afraid there isn't enough for both, so he simply 
won't touch a bite." 

Every night before going to bed the two children 
slipped down to the scalehouse and weighed each other. 
On this particular night Ebenezer had just four more 
pounds than Petie to his credit. The following night he 
had but three. This was the night before the fateful one. 
Petie cheered him up still more by telling him that he 
would eat twice as much the following day, but on the 
morrow Petie was ill, quite ill, and try as he might he 
could not choke down a morsel. Ebenezer was in a terri- 
ble state of mind. To satisfy him, his brother managed 
to get to the scalehouse once again. Oh horrors! Petie 
lacked five pounds of equalling his brother's weight. It 
was all up with that fellow now. He hadn't a ghost of 
a chance. The day was one long nightmare to both, but 
all things finally come to an end, so with this day. 

Petie, tired and worn, had just dozed, when he felt as 
though Ebenezer were being quietly lifted from beside 
him, but sleep seemed so dear, the night so peaceful, that 
he sank back into oblivion. 

"Have you seen Ebenezer this morning?" 
Petie woke with a start on hearing his mother's anx- 
ious voice from below him. Turning, he beheld only the 
bare roost where Ebenezer had been only a few hours 

"I promised to go with him out to the stacks early 
this morning to spend the day." 

Petie's eyes had been wandering about over the farm 
yard and now were resting on a tall figure in slouch hat 

Page Seven 

Wfyt College Greeting* 

and duck coat engaged in relieving Ebenezer of his last 
handful of feathers. Quickly he withdrew his gaze lest 
hers should follow, and with a little catch in his voice re- 
plied, "It's not late yet." 


At Six 

You just bet your life it's comin', 

Tomorrow's almost here. 
Ever' time I think o' turkey 

My insides jus' feel so queer. 
1 began to feel Thanksgiving 

Comin' most a month ago. 
I've been thankful ever' minute, 

Tho some times the days went slow. 
I kin smell those pies a-bakin' 

Thru ev'ry open door, 
An' if 1 don't eat much to-day 

Thanksgiving I'll hold lots more. 
So I pull my belt up tighter, 

An' I think o' all the mess 
O' turkey 'at I'll eat to-morrow 

An' I'm full o' thankfulness. 

At Twenty 

Oh yes! We'll knock 'em off the earth — 

They haven't got a show. 
We don't intend to fool one bit — 

Just fix 'em up a bit and — go. 
We've trained thru all this whole first term — 

We're banking lots on this one game. 
If we don't win the blooming' thing, 

Thanksgiving will be pretty tame. 
I can see the colors flying 

Every time I shut my eyes. 
Pag* Sight 

<E$e College Greeting* 

And I hear the old band playing 

Tunes of former victories. 
If we hold our own against them, 

If we only stand the test, 
I'll just bet the pilgrim fathers 

Couldn't beat our thankfulness. 
At Sixty 
Oh the memories that crowd each year 

Around Thanksgiving Day, 
That make me feel the rapid pace 

Of time that has now passed away. 
How many of such days I've spent 

Thru all the months and years gone by. 
And thoughts of past Thanksgiving Days, 

As This time of year draws nigh. 
I've had my days of pumpkin pie, 

I've had my foot-ball strife — 
But another thought comes to me 

Thru the years of later life. 
If I cherish all my memories, 

If there's none I'd take away, 
And as time goes on they're dearer, 

Then — I've kept Thanksgiving Day. 

Marjorie Becker, '18, 



From early morning, when in kimonos and breakfast 
caps we appear in the halls for corridor breakfast, until 
the night when, after the big dinner, the toasts and the 
surprises, we go wearily to bed, Thanksgiving is one of the 
most enjoyable of our college days. For the Freshman 
it is a chance to show their artistic and executive ability, 
for to them falls the lot of transforming the dining room 
into a banquet hall; for every one it is a happy day into 
which so many things are crowded that you forget that 
you had expected to spend a homesick day.

Q$e College Greeting* 

Seraphina — Are they going to make toast at that 

In Evolution Class. — Miss V. — Is the struggle for ex- 
istence greater where there is an abundance or where there 
is a scarcity of food ? 

J. R. — Where there is an abundance. 

L. G. — I disagree. 

JO R. — Well, when you have eaten a Christmas or 
Thanksgiving dinner isn't there a greater struggle than if 
you hadn't had so much ? 


It was a grand merry-making that the College Specials 
gave at I. W. C. this October thirty-second. A truly rep- 
resentative body of lively jollificationers marched, saun- 
tered, jigged, waddled, skipped, hobbled and toddled 
across the stage and then settled down to see 'The Lady 
in Red." The pretty play was quite absorbing and kept 
even the smallest children and the most irrepressible dark- 
ies subdued for an hour or more, then down through festive 
yet awe-inspiring halls that crowd was led to the myster- 
ious chamber of horrors. There, helpless because of the 
darkness, one was seized and forced to ride upon ocean 
waves, then a ghastly, glowing skeleton glided into the 
pathway, while, if anyone hesitated to go on, little imps 
grabbed the ankles and pricked and prodded from all 
sides. Suddenly, squeezing walls held one fast, and no 
sooner was escape made from these than a mighty sick- 
ening-sweet spray descended from some unknown direc- 
tion. The victim was released for a while and allowed to 
enjoy such pleasures as having his fortune told and visit-

ing the abode of the spirits of the dead, but soon loud 
wailing voices called and passage to the outer world was 
made thru the strange and awful Cave of the Winds. 
Outside, the completely terrified sufferer was revived in 
a pleasant room by pleasant people, who gave to him 
Hallow'een refreshments. 


Happy is the early autumn, 
When the summer has forgotten 
All her fierceness and her passion, 
But still lingers not yet ready 
To give o'er to frost her splendors. 
Joyous fall-time! 

There are golden days in autumn, 
When the rays of sunlight slanting 
Softly cling to yellow field flowers, 
Purple asters, and red salvia; 
And the leaves are all a-glowing. 
Royal autumn! 

There come lazy days in autmn 
Made for dreaming and for feeling 
Just a little tinge of sadness; 
Overhead the flight of wild-birds, 
All around the shifting shadows. 
Summer's left us. 

After this the busy days come; 
All a cheerful, bustling hurry, 
Filled with shouts of pushing children 
Answering the school-bell's clanging, 
Filled with rapid thud in coal-bins. 
Winter's coming ! 

Last of all there come the grey days, 
Bringing trees all bare and lonesome; 
Underneath the brown leaves rustling. 
Long and steady, dismal raining — 
Film of ice across the water. 
Almost snow-time. 

Letta Irwin, '14.

Most of us are just waking up to the fact that we are 
making history in this College. Every day that passes 
has something to add to our record as an educational insti- 
tution that counts, not merely exists. It is not expected 
that we take especial notice of these days which are 
thought of as matters of course in a steady movement for- 
ward. Special events, however, that give rise to epochs, 
are certainly worthy of the special attention given them. 
The spirit of progress, which is our greatest asset as a col- 
lege, has shown us that we, as college women, are not 
giving our fullest and best development to the College. 

Student government, a direct result of progress, is 
capable of supplying and furthering this development. 
Its merit, as a unifying agency, is due to the fact that it 
is up to the individual to work for the mass. 

That we are ready for student government is shown 
by our increased ability in open discussion. The mass 
meetings and class meetings that were held to bring the 
subject of student government before the student body 
were the most profitable and satisfactory ones held this 
year. People said things. All of this goes to prove that 
we are thinking. Remember, you are a member of the 
student body. Whether Senior, Freshman, Special or 
First Prep, it doesn't matter, if you are going to put your 
"uphill shoulder to the wheel" and push this thing with all 
the strength of loyalty and honesty of conviction that you 
possess. In the ballot cast for student government there 
were three votes against it. Are we going to add to those 
three lonesome votes by a failure to respond individually, 
or are we going to surprise even ourselves by the ease 
with which we can put this movement through?

Qflfje College Greeting* 

Two very interesting evenings were spent in discus- 
sion of grammar and courtesy, by the student body this 
month. At the first meeting the grammar committee 
which was elected several weeks ago made its report. A 
sentiment of respect for the King's English has as a result 
of this meeting been aroused in the College. The pur- 
pose of the committee report is not to make our conversa- 
tions self-conscious, but to make us more careful in ob- 
serving the mistakes which we thoughtlessly make in our 
daily use of grammar. The question of culture was to 
be discussed in connection with the grammar, but as the 
time was up the discussion had to be left to some future 
time. The second report came from the committee on 
Courtesy and Consideration. This group of girls had, 
also, been spying on themselves and their neighbors. 
They suggested many things which if followed will make 
our relations to the faculty, to each other, to the help in 
the house, more thoughtful and congenial. 



Say, kids, listen ! What do you know about it? The 
Seniors and Juniors and Sophomores — some of them, I 
mean — have went on a camping party! Seems like us 
Freshmen don't get no privileges a' tall. 1 don't think it's 
right. And say, I've got to make a talk in English to- 
morrow. I will die. I know I will. Miss N. don't have 
no mercy on a person. And talk about your luck! They 
had a swell play at the opera house last night and hardly 
nobody went I wisht I'd a knowed we could o' went.

I'd a been and asked to gone. Oh, thanks! I love

your new dress. How perfectly darling! Look out! 
You'll squash it. You know, I don't hardly know what 
I'll wear Thanksgiving. Mother told my sister and I we 
could have some new clothes after Christmas. Say! Can 
you make your shoes last very long? I use to could, but 
I can't now. Ye gods and little fishes! Has the bell 
rang? Well, wouldn't that get you? Well, goodby,

It has been the duty of the College Council to appoint 
several committees during the last weeks. An entertain- 
ment committee has been appointed to determine what 
outside entertainments should be given by the student 
body. A committee on evaluation, to work out a system 
of determining how much outside work is to be allowed 
to a student in addition to her college course, is now at 
work. Two committees, the Backward Committee, 
which is to gather together the time-honored customs of 
the school, and the Looking Forward Committee, which 
is to suggest new rules, have been appointed to work out 
a system of rules for the organization of student govern-

But charm no poets, lure no wits,

The Iowa Club 

All the Iowa girls met in the private parlor one even- 
ing in October and formed their Iowa club. Margaret 
Moss was elected president and Irma Miller secretary- 

Friday evening, October the twenty-fourth, the club 
met at an Iowa table, decorated in gold and black. Be- 
tween courses was sung the Iowa song: 

You ask what land I love the best 

Iowa, 'tis Iowa, 
The fairest state in all the West 

Iowa, 'tis Iowa, 
From yonder Mississippi's stream 
To where Missouri's waters gleam 
O fair it is as poet's dream 
Iowa, oh, Iowa. 
The Iowa club regrets the loss of one of its numbers, 
Miss Mildred Squire of Davenport, who went home on 
account of illness. 

Irma Miller and Wylma Cox entertained the Iowa 
club at a Kensington on November the seventeenth.

The Minnesota Club 

The Minnesota girls regret that on account of the de- 
crease in their numbers they will not be able to continue 
their existence as the "Minnesota Nine." There are, 
nevertheless, many things that a quartette can attempt. 
Perhaps in that far distant track meet we may be the 
archery or tennis victors. 

The Missouri Club 

On the night of November thirteenth, 1913, thirteen 
Missouri girls met the old chapel and organized a Missouri 
State club. Two officers were elected, Helen Harrison, 
president, Helen Jones, secretary and treasurer. 

The club wishes to announce that they challenge all 
other state clubs to an interstate track meet to be held in 
the spring. 

Indiana Club Notes 

President — Maude Alice Drake. 
Vice-President — Grace Heller. 
Secretary — Florence Haller. 
Treasurer — Ruth Alexander. 
Reporter — Mary Harrison. 

The club from the Hoosier state has the largest mem- 
bership of the state organizations at I. W. C, there being 
thirty-three of us. The members are bubbling over with 
enthusiasm and are doing all in their power to make the 
year of 1913-14 the best the club has ever experienced. 

On Monday morning, November the tenth, we en- 
joyed a waffle breakfast at "The Peacock," which re- 
lieved the monotony of shredded wheat biscuits. 

The president delightfully entertained us Saturday 
evening, November the sixteenth, in the Phi Nu hall. We 
discussed plans for a camping party which will take place 
this coming summer. The main feature of the entertain-

At chapel time on October thirtieth a mass meeting of 
the students was held at which it was announced that the 
Junior class will undertake the responsibility of publishing 
a "College Annual" this year. 

Miss Feril Hess, the president of the Council, called 
the meeting to order, and in a few words told how for a 
long while it has been the dream of the future to have a 
college year book, but for many reasons it has never been 
possible of attainment until now. This year the college 
council decided that we must have a year book this year, 
and granted to the Junior class the privilege of publishing 
it. The staff, as elected by the Juniors, she read as 

Editor-in-chief — Audrey Berryman. 

Assistant editor-in-chief— Mary Louise Powell. 

Associate editors — Effie Theobald, Helen Dinsmore. 

Art editor — Feril Hess. 

Business manager— Josephine Ross. 

Assistant business manager— Winifred Burmeister. 

The meeting was then turned over to Miss Audrey 
Berryman, who made a most interesting talk on the plans 
and hopes of the annual board. Miss Josephine Ross, as 
business manager, and Miss Hess, as art editor, were called 
upon to tell what part the students of the College and 
Academy were to have in the Annual 

Page Eighteen 

Qfyt College Greeting* 

Miss Berryman then asked if there were not some of 
the school who would like to pledge their support. En- 
thusiastic talks were made by Ruth Alexander, Freda Fen- 
ton, Ruth Want, Lucile McCloud, Esther Fowler, Abbie 
Peavoy, Hallie Clem, Miss Mothershead, Miss Johnston 
and Mr. Max Swarthout. 

The name contest which Miss Berryman announced, 
to begin that day and close the following Thursday at 
9 p. m., was, we regret to say, unsuccessful. The staff 
was much pleased with the interest shown by the many 
who gave their suggestions—and there really were some 
very good names suggested — but the staff decided that 
they would not choose any name until later, hoping in the 
meantime that some one will be inspired to give us some- 
thing original that will meet with the approval of the en- 
tire staff. Choosing our name is one of the most impor- 
tant questions we have, since the name will not only be 
used this but in all the years to come. 

Committees are being appointed from the student 
body to act as reporters to the Annual staff. The Juniors 
want the whole school to be interested, actively interested, 
in this first appearance of the College Annual. The Jun- 
iors feel exceedingly gratified at the interest so far shown, 
and hope it will be continued. 


One Saturday night there passed up and down the cor- 
ridors of the dormitories a most startlingly unusual band, 
emitting shrieks, squeals and blasts to the accompaniment 
of various popular songs. Of course everyone followed 
the band. The occasion was the Y. W. street carnival, 
and the main show, a minstrel. It was a perfect "scream" 
from the stereopticon burlesque on the Freshmen to the 
final local hit by the leading lady. Then the band howled 
the way down to the smaller shows, via the shoot-the- 
chutes. Bouncing Betty rode her steed bareback in an

astonishing manner, the nigger babies refused to be hit, 
and the spectacular high diver performed her stunt brave- 
ly. What matter if the merry-go-round did upset with 
four faculty members? What if the President and his 
wife were arrested, imprisoned, brought to trial and fined 
for spooning? "Hot dog" and lemonade soothed all, 
and the art gallery furnished entertainment for the most 
trained taste ! 


On the great day when the women of Jacksonville 
first experienced their use of the ballot concerning the 
local option question, I was fortunate enough to be ranked 
with the faculty in the class of those who were to decide 
this momentous issue. Added to my delight in being able 
to vote was the privilege of breakfasting with the faculty 
voters. Many envious and admiring glances were cast 
towards us, in whose hands were held the reins of power. 
Those glances, however, did not check the rapidity with 
which we consumed our breakfast. Amid loud applause 
we rushed upstairs. After a scramble for lost hat-pins 
and forgotten purses, undaunted we set out to our voting 
precinct. Only a few who were sufficiently inspired had 
preceded us there. 

"Humph! I didn't know college girls were allowed to 
vote" came from a veteran at the registration table. 

"Sh — h, they are college teachers" followed in an un- 

Again my joy nearly overleaped its bounds — to be 
taken for a member of the faculty. 

Given our ballots, we separately went into the myster- 
ious voting booth, a commonplace cubby hole. The lit- 
tle check, which seemed a trivial thing, could cause un- 
dreamed of anxiety. I re-read the ballot three times to be 
sure the check was placed correctly. As I came out of 
the booth I heard the clerk say — 
Page Twenty 

W&t College Greeting* 

'Tour vote is challenged." 

"But she is twenty-one, furthermore she's a school 
teacher," spoke up the mother of a slender scared-faced 

"Let the notary public swear her in, he is at breakfast 

By this time all our party had voted, and though desir- 
ous of seeing the outcome of this affair, we heeded the call 
of eight o'clock classes. At the hedge we were greeted 
by a group of eager photographers, who wished to have a 
picture of the first I. W. C. voters. 

G. V. U. 

From the first time that I remember hearing the words 
woman and suffrage mentioned in the same breath, I have 
had an intense desire to vote. So when the word came 
to me while I was out of the state that this honor and priv- 
ilege had been conferred upon us, I was very glad. At 
first I was worried for fear the first chance to exercise this 
wonderful right would come this year before I had reached 
that age which forever separates us from childhood, or 
that age which I thought would perform this remarkable 
feat. Again fate favored me, for the magic date was set 
for a few days after my birthday. Days beforehand I 
began to plan for election day, to ask where to go, to 
make arrangements for getting there, and to resolve to 
get up early for once anyway. I was up before six 
o'clock, at a quarter of seven I was impatiently awaiting 
the buggy, and before seven I was on my way to the polls. 
My excitement increased with every foot of the way, and 
as we aproached the little shack I could hardly wait to get 
in that wonderful booth and cast my vote. My turn came 
quickly and before I could realize that I was actually vot- 
ing, it was over. No, it was not over either; all day long 
I waited for the returns, never before had I been so inter- 
ested. When finally the last figures were chalked on the

bulletin, I had a feeling of exultation that I had helped in 
ever so small a way to win the victory of the day.

Mrs. Harker, Mrs. Metcalf and Miss Neville, assisted 
by the faculty, entertained at a most delightful reception 
Monday afternoon, November the tenth, in honor of Miss 
Amy Mothershead. 

The College halls and the reception room were beau- 
tifully decorated with cut flowers and ferns. 

The guests were met at the door by college girls and 
ushered to the reception room. Later they were escorted 
to the Society halls, where dainty refreshments were 
served by another group of girls. 

After the guests had departed Mrs. Harker entertained 
the faculty and others who had assisted during the after- 
noon at a delicious three-course dinner. 


The Seniors and Juniors are frequently the cause of 
envy, but especially so Thursday evening, November the 
thirteenth, when a merry party consisting of the Seniors 
and Juniors with their class officers, Dr. and Mrs. Harker, 
Miss Mothershead and Miss Neville boarded the six-fifteen 
car for the Colonial Inn. After the sumptuous dinner 
given by the Juniors, impromptu toasts and music were 


Hurrah for the College Glee club. The voices of the 
applicants were tried out last week. The membership 
now stands as follows:

Annis Wells, Hallie Clem, Helen Jones, Noami Davis, 
Irene Crum. 

We are very proud of this new organization. We 
hope that they will soon make their official appearance. 


What would happen if — 

Every girl started to the dining room when the second 
breakfast bell rang ? 

There was no lingering in the halls before evening 

Nobody spoke of Christmas and home? 

The reporters were punctual in handing in their re- 
ports for the Greetings? 

We should follow the suggestions made by the Gram- 
mar and Courtesy committees? 

We should, really, have a week of quiet ? 

There is a matter which the old students have failed 
to pass down to the new girls or to observe themselves. 
It is in regard to the Sunday night lunches. The time was 
given in order that we might have more time to ourselves. 
It was stipulated, when the privilege was given, that not 
more than six girls should be in the same room, and that 
no extensive cooking should be done. We should not 
make this lunch an additional extravagance. With a lit- 
tle planning the lunch can be made inexpensive. The 
Greetings is glad to publish from time to time recipes for 
dishes which will not cost more than the amount that is 
usually spent for "eats" for the room. 

Riddle — What is there about psychology that makes 
even babies cry ?

Quite a number of our girls have been made happy by 
visits from relatives this month. Mrs. Meek, Irene Crum's 
father, mother and little sister, Mrs. Newlin, Mr. and Mrs. 
Barton, Mr. Randall, June Wiley's aunt, Lucile Rexroat's 
sister, Ruth Brown's sister, Gretchen Francken's father, 
Dorothy Pinkston's sister, Pearl Sweet's grandmother, 
sister and brother, Bertha Smith's mother, and Mrs. Row- 
land have spent a few days at our I. W. C. 

Elizabeth Williams knows that there are 523 spindles 
in the railing from first floor Harker to fifth. 

If you have just ninety-five cents to buy ninety-five 
cents worth of apples, weenies and buns, why, get M. S. 
to do the buying, for she knows how to manage so that a 
whole dime is left over for candy, altho even she may not 
know how she does it. 

All contributions to the Greetings Box are very wel- 
come, from poems to the quarter left by the bishops. 

Men say that women cannot hold their places in a line. 
They say that in such places as banks or bread lines wo- 
men not only expect the men to step aside but also each 
one expects a place to be made for her at the very front. 

It has always been a matter of pride that the Illinois 
Woman's College girls observed the maxim "First come, 
first served" without pushing and crowding, whether the 
line is for a picnic supper or before the Dean's door. 
There is one little courtesy, however, that we as students 
are happy to show to the faculty, to visitors, and to older 
people: We are glad to step back and give them a place 
at the head of the line.

The editor and an associate editor of the Rambler 
paid a visit to the Greetings last week. They came to

will be able to get a permanent office. We can testify 
that it is both a time and labor saver.

{£fje College (greeting* 

The work taken up this semester deals with American 
literature in relation to types of American peoples. We 
have already had some very interesting programs on the 
Indian, the Negro, and the Westerner. We have yet to 
take up the Frontiersman, the Settler, the Southerner, and 
the Immigrant. 

Sieverdena Harmel, who has been ill at the Passavant 
hospital, is much better now and will be taken to her home 
in Pekin, Illinois, November fifteenth. Miss Harmel does 
not expect to return to school until after Christmas. 

We have word of the marriage of Adelaide Wright, 
one of our old members, to Mr. Charles L. Brainard. 
They will be at home after November twentieth in Water- 
loo, Iowa. 

Theta Sigma 

A series of programs on "Statues in Literature" prom- 
ises very interesting meetings for the next few weeks. 

Because of illness, Ruth Miller has* had to give up her 
work for a while. We are looking forward to having her 
with us again after Christmas. 

Alice Herren was called home Thursday, November 
the thirteenth, because of the death of her grandfather. 

Lambda Mu 

Eighteen new members have been welcomed into the 
fellowship of Lambda Mu. 

The use of Belles Lettres hall has helped, temporarily, 
in solving the problem of making the time, the place and 
the girls coincide. 

Lambda Alpha Mu was pleased to have Miss Mamie 
Pinkston visit a meeting. 

From the impromptu program given by the new mem- 
bers at the last meeting Lambda Mu feels assured that its 
prospects for the coming year are glowing. At the same 
meeting permanent committees for the year were ap- 
pointed by the president.

Nelle Rives and Mary Fowler have been elected to 
fill the vacancies made by Nora Alexander as vice-presi- 
dent and Ednah Thompson as treasurer. The two other 
vacant offices will be filled later by new members. 

November the thirteenth the old Academea girls, in- 
cluding Esther Fowler, Johanna Onken and Rachel Mor- 
ris, spent a pleasant afternoon with Myrtle Mitchell. 


Home Economics 

Miss Churton gave a talk on "Ventilation" to the 
members of the Tuesday club at its regular meeting on 
November the fourth. 

During the last few weeks two members of the first 
year class have had to leave school. First Rachel Gid- 
dings because of illness at home, and Alice Blick on ac- 
count of her own failing health.

The choral organization, heretofore known as the 
Glee club, has changed its name to the Madrigal club, 
and will be under the direction of Miss McKay of the Col- 
lege of Music faculty. A fine program of chorus music 
is being prepared for a recital to be given later in the col- 
lege year. 

Miss Nicholson visited her sister at Hedding College 
for a few days this month. 

Misses Beebe, Goodrick and Mrs. Kolp were in Chi- 
cago last week. 

The recital by Cornelius Van Vliet, head cellist of 
Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, and Miss Edwards, 
pianist of Chicago, was greatly appreciated by the audi- 
ence. The program was of unusually high grade through- 
out, both performers proving themselves artists of excep- 
tional character. 

A number of the College girls have joined the Grace 
church chorus choir, which will sing at the regular even- 
ing church service. A Christmas cantata, by Chadwick, 
will be given.

A large double case, made especially for the library 
of ensemble music, has recently been placed in Director 
Swarthout's studio. 

Definite word has just been received to the effect that 
the recital scheduled for November seventeenth by Mrs. 
Grace Wood Jess, soprano, and Miss Carol Robinson, 
pianist, cannot be given on the date announced. It is 
probable that the concert as planned will take place later 
in the year. Full announcement will be made as soon as 

The regular Thursday afternoon recitals given by 
students from College of Music are well attended, and the 
programs show exceptionally thorough training and un- 
usual talent. 

Expression Notes 

Miss Vera Tomlin, one of last year's graduates in 
Epression, gave her commencement program at Spring- 
field recently. She presented "When Knighthood Was 
in Flower," which met with great success. 

Arrangements have been made for the use of the 
practice rooms on fifth floor Music hall for the Expression 
students. It is an achievement long anticipated and is 
appreciated by all. 

The advanced students' recital will be given Decem- 
ber eighteenth. "Child World" is to be the theme run- 
ning through the various readings. 

On the evening of December eighth Miss Allen will 
give a program of Browning monologues. 

Miss Parsons will read in Marshalltown and Belle 
Plain, Iowa, November twenty-seventh and twenty-eighth.

The Seniors are busy practicing for the play which

Sophomore Notes 

Shortly after the last dinner bell, when all others were 
taking their places, they were greatly surprised Wednes- 
day evening, October twenty-second, to see the Sopho- 
mores, in white dresses and yellow ties, making their way 
from the reception hall to the dining room. As guests 
of the class, Miss Mothershead and Dr. and Mrs. Marker 
led the way with Miss Cowgill, the Sophomore class offi- 
cer. Softly the rays shone through yellow shades from 
the lights just above three tables purposely arranged on 
the farther side of the room, while a number of large 
chrysanthemums served as centerpieces. Enjoying the 
novelty and effect of it all, and looking at the tables, each 
found her place card, on which was a dainty hand-painted 
chrysanthemum. Altogether, the Sophomore colors, 
yellow and white, were carried out delightfully, even to 
the charming little yellow baskets containing salted 
almonds. After the dinner party all went to the chapel, 
when later each of the guests was presented with three of 
the yellow chrysanthemums. 

Because of the change in classification, we have wel- 
comed three new members from the College Specials, 
Naomi Davis, Louise Gilfillan and Hazel Kiblinger, mak- 
ing a total number of thirty-two for the Sophomore class. 


We notice that the Christian University at Canton, 
Mo., is also starting an annual this year. We hope the

Two of our exchanges differ in a marked degree from 
the rest of the college papers— the "Upsala Gazette," 
partly written in the Swedish language, and the "Central 
Wesleyan Star," partly written in German. 

One of the best features of the "Lincolnian" is the 
cuts at the heads of the departments. 

We congratulate the "Blackburnian" upon the neat- 
ness of its appearance and its new departments, the mo- 
tive of which is to bring the students in closer touch with 
the college of the past. 

A similar feature is noticed in the "Illinois Wesleyan 
Argus," which plans to devote part of the Alumni Section 
each month to some article written by or concerning some 
of their alumni. 

The "Rambler" is to be congratulated for its forceful 
editorials and the quality of some of its literary produc- 
tions, especially the story entitled "The Curse of 

Other exchanges that have been received are the 
"Vidette," Culver, 111.; the "Eureka College Pegasus," 
the "Rockford Ralla," the "Carthage Collegian," "St.

The breaking waves dashed high 
On a stern and rock-bound coast, 

And the woods against a stormy sky 
Their giant branches tossed; 

And the heavy night hung black 

The hills and waters o'er, 
When a band of exiles moored their bark 

On the wild New England shore. 

Aye, call it holy ground, 

The soil where first they trod; 
They have left unstained what there they 
Freedom to worship God. 

— Felicia Hemans.
